Regarded as one of the greatest wide receivers of all time, Irvin was an integral part of the Dallas Cowboys’ dominance in the 1990s. Charismatic and opinionated, Irvin was a natural fit on television following his football career and served as an analyst for ESPN and the NFL Network.

A two-time All-American standout at USC, Johnson went on to win a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in an 11-year NFL career. Shortly after retirement, Johnson joined ESPN and served as an analyst across various studio shows and major events for the network for well over a decade.

Richard Sherman
A Super Bowl champion and five-time Pro Bowler, Sherman begins his time with FOX Sports following a stellar career on the gridiron. He played a pivotal role in the Seattle Seahawks’ dominant defensive unit that led them to a Super Bowl victory and was well known for his outgoing personality and insightful commentary.
